It’s going to be a mighty busy day today on the show. I sure hope we can fit it all in.

We’ll chat with the amazing Mary Gauthier, who returns to town on Feb. 20 for a reunion performance with Scott Nolan & Joanna Miller, who spent a lot of time on the road operating as Mary’s opening act and backing band. They haven’t done that in quite some time, so it’ll be a great treat to see them team up once again. This show stopped in town last summer, and it was one of the most amazing shows of the year, and there’s no reason to believe that this one will be any different.

Coming up on Saturday, Feb. 15 is the sad, sixth anniversary of the death of my favourite songwriter of all, Willie P Bennett. We always try to commemorate the day and do our best to keep Willie’s songs and spirit alive. This year, we’ve got a little extra help. Former Winnipegger Jaxon Haldane is behind The Willie P Bennett Legacy Project, which has photos, stories, and great artists covering Willie’s songs, which you can download for FREE! I’m so pleased that this is happening. We’re going to chat with Jaxon today about Willie, the project, and what the heck he’s doing living in Oklahoma!

There are some dynamite shows to preview this week, inclduing the return of the great David Myles along with Matt Andersen, The Wilderness of Manitoba, and Andy Shauf!

Plus I just discovered a couple of albums that are really impressing me, one from Parker Millsap, and a dynamic duo called Sugar & The Hi-Lows!

Oh, if only we had more time…

Tune in and see what all we can fit!
